#: 1-800-345-2550 >>> when michigan republicans came back after this last election and suddenly moved without warning to get rid of union rights in their state, one of the things that was so shocking about it was that they had not campaigned on doing that. that was not what this election was about in michigan. in fact, the republican governor of the state, rick snyder, said that he didn't want to do that. but they kim back after this election and they did it anyway. all of a sudden in a bit of a surprise attack. their cover, what they explained about why they felt justified doing it, was that michigan voters in this election had voted against a pro-union rights constitutional amendment. governor rick snyder explained that because the voters said no to an unrelated pro-union rights measure he felt that was a green light for him to strip union rights across the state. the logic is a stretch. but at least you can sort of follow it, right? well, now there's this. in the 2012 election, in this past election michigan voters also got to vote on governor snyder's emergency manager law, which

to work state, the newest is the state of michigan. if any state was emblematic of organized labor in this country, it has to be the state of michigan, moving in the direction of north carolina and 23 other states as well. this is starting to look like a serious shift historically. perhaps the entire nation becoming brightwork. >> i agree with that. i agree with that because you see 91010 states. especially michigan. lou: insurance exchanges states are deciding whether to create insurance for themselves or -- i don't know whether to call them architects are what obamacare -- these insurance exchanges are not happening. eighteen states plus washington dc are the only ones who have declared that he they will set their own exchanges under obamacare. by my math, that leaves 25. we are going to leave it up to the government. that is remarkable. >> i was proud to be part of a 26 a coalition that led the fight against this health care lawsuit to this report. we were able to carve t the ability for states to opt out. i am proud of governor nikki haley for deciding to opt out of this. this

in michigan, i hope the governor of michigan would call on the president to ask his allies to behave in a civil and decent manner. there's no justification for people threatening violence. i think one of the democratic state senators in michigan said that thereai will be blood. what kind of comment is that from an elected official and why is it being tolerated? i always think the networks and the new york sometimes and others have a real obligation to cover union violence when it occurs and not hide it. i think you're raising a good point. it's one that we should be aggressive in demanding that the president call on his allies to exercise discipline and civility. >> sean: do you remember duringy the tea party rallies? you were speaking about the s media. the media would search high and low and they would be looking for something negative that the tea party movement was saying, and usually there were kids on their dads' shoulders and they'd hear patriotic speeches and say the pledge of allegiance and god bless america and leave the place cleaner than when they found it. i ask you thro
